Although there is tumult in the land, the folks you've featured and those who are of like mind offer hope. As a baby boomer and activist in the 60's, I can't help but think about the songs of protest ringing true today as they did many years ago.
Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" http://www.youtube.com /watch?v=9KKEXZTrvAU and Jefferson Airplane's "Stop Children What's That Sound" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuwLwnUmOfQ

As usual, your posts continue to provide information and links to events for those of us who want "war no more" and greater compassionate behavior towards many who have not been treated well by happenstance.
